    Winemaker's Notes:

    Since 1912 the Osborn family have tended the 19th century vineyards at their d'Arenberg Winery located in McLaren Vale, South Australia. The Osborns are proud to release The Stump Jump range of premium McLaren Vale wines, so named as the land for many of the region's old vineyards was originally cleared using the Stump Jump plough. This South Australian invention enabled the ploughshare to jump over the gnarled "mallee" Eucalypt roots, saving valuable time and resources. The Stump Jump red from the 1999 vintage is based on the Grenache (85%) and Shiraz (15%) grape varieties. Originating in the Rhone Valley of France, Grenache and Shiraz are the backbone varieties of the McLaren Vale region. Once picked, the fruit is gently crushed in our "Demoisy" open mouthed, rubber toothed crusher and pumped into traditional headed down open fermenters. Following fermentation, The Stump Jump Grenache Shiraz is gently pressed by our 19th Century "Coq" and "Bromley & Tregoning" basket presses prior to oak maturation. This is a rich, soft and flavorsome red in the traditional McLaren Vale style. Mulberry and plum flavors from the Grenache combine with the blackberry, spice and white pepper of the Shiraz. Best server at room temperature, this wine will gain added complexity with careful cellaring over the next 2-5 years.
